Stephanie Schierholz

An award-winning communicator, I bring 15 years’ experience leading strategic communications, media relations, and public outreach efforts to my current role as lead spokesperson for human spaceflight and exploration at NASA. My experience includes coordinating and implementing strategic communications and media plans; writing and editing; on-camera interviews and news conferences; and speechwriting for executives.

I have been a keynote speaker at conferences worldwide, in addition to teaching at universities and corporate trainings. I was instrumental in implementing social media and building community engagement as the first social media manager both at NASA Headquarters and at Raytheon.
